TL-9 Training and Vehicle Lifting Drill
By SVFD Webteam
February 13, 2020

At our weekly drill on February 12th 2020 the SVFD welcomed Mike Lombardi from Firematic to conduct in-service department training on the TL-9 extrication tool. The TL-9 is a new resource that the Somers Fire District recently purchased to compliment our new Hurst eDraulic tools. The TL-9 allows us to use the spreaders to lift objects such as cars. After this training the TL-9's were officially put into service on Rescue 20 and Engine 185.

The SVFD also used this opportunity to train on our Res-Q-Jack's that we purchased last year. This was a great review for our members on the basics of their operation and use.
